After many KCLS patron reviews, "Live Dead" has a four and half star rating. Remember there are reviews with patrons who were not in love with this recording. Yet so many five star patrons reviews pulls the rating up. I fall into the five star rating patrons. As with so many others, "Live Dead" is captures the beauty of the Grateful Dead music. It will pass the test of time!
P.S. As of 1/27/18 they have just announced a new Grateful Dead live concert tour! You can expect another "Live Dead 2018" after the tour is completed!

This was an okay album but to my mind if you want a live Grateful Dead album you would do better to pick up one of the Dick's Picks series.

The last Grateful Dead concert is coming up soon, so it is good to see that a great live Dead album is in the KCLS catalog. This is the best rated live show. It comes from a 1969 show, which is a year that the band had most of its original members. From now on, the "Live/Dead" Grateful Dead album will have to be the tribute album to such a famous band!

Considered by Rolling Stone to be one of the Top 500 Albums of All time, Live Dead was the first live album from Grateful Dead, culled from shows in the winter of early 1969 at the Fillmore West and Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco, CA. GD was still in its psychedelic jamming phase, as evidenced by the extended, rambling versions of Dark Star, The Eleven and Turn On Your Love Light. Using innovative techniques of recording directly to the soundboard, the audio quality was much higher than most live performance albums of the time. This album is simply not to be missed, and for more extensive listening, try Fillmore West 1969, a 3-disc version of this concert series, or Fillmore West 1969: The Complete Recordings, a 10-disc masterpiece with an 11th bonus disc of heavenly Dead!!

If you have never heard this album do yourself a favour and: a) get it b) block off some time to listen uninterrupted. If you ever wondered what all the fuss was about, this album will explain it all. Believe it if you need it, if you don't just pass it on.
